Never mind the top lots in this week’s Old Master sales in London -- at Christie’s, Sir Peter Paul Rubens’ commanding Portrait of a Commander Armed for Battle, which sold for £9,001,250 ($13,663,898), and Georg Pencz’ imposing Portrait of Sigismund Baldinger, which went for £5,641,250 ($8,563,418), and at Sotheby’s, J.M.W. Turner’s Modern Rome - Campo Vaccino, which was knocked down for £29,721,250 ($45,158,050), over a high estimate of £15 million, a new record, to the Getty Museum, no less.
